I have used a code for years applied about 6 inches from the tip. Number of Pantone or fine Sharpie dots for line weight and then a dash for WF or a dot away from the group for DT. It doesn’t tell you the brand of course. Black still shows up on dark green sinkers.On another note. Does anyone have a hot tip about how to remember what line you have on what spool?
Some reels have indicators but most seem not too. I've also seen wide elastic rings that hold the line in place and have WF 5 F written on them - are they homemade?
Cortland now print the line spec on the tips of theirs.
On the complex subject of lines- has anyone used the OPST single handed commando lines?
Brilliant idea but very costly and complex, sort of turns the traditional line technology on its head (pardon the pun) with the extremely short heads.
